this popped up on tv the other day and not only did i watch it all, i realised that i knew the whole script off by heart... and the music... and i still loved it all. forget the two films that followed it. this is totally the matrix to the spy who shagged me's reloaded and goldmember revolutions.
it's too easy to plug-in and too powerful not to be using. (if you're on spotify, hooking in last.fm is a no-brainer.) however, it's true that the site can sometimes feel a little slow to move with the times. a sleeping giant, but a giant nonetheless.

(And yes, I'd like there to be a Hunch channel there asap!)
